Kanjurmarg plot will now be used for Metro-VI project
MUMBAI: The Kanjurmarg field salad of 41 hectares, which has been identified for the car spilled Colaba-SEEPZ Metro-III will now be used for Metro-VI. This elevated subway line comes from Swami Samarth Nagar (Lokhandwala, Andheri West) via Jogeshwari-Vikhroli road link to Kanjurmarg.
While activists were very attentive to Metro-III shipping cars, they moved to Kanjurmarg to save the green cover Aarey, but it remains by Aarey.
In 2015, following large-scale protests against the construction of an Aarey subway vehicle, the state government has established a committee to look for other sites for a subway car shed.
“The committee’s first choice was Kanjurmarg,” said Metropolitan Commissioner PS T Madan. The 41-hectare, but undisputed, are part of a single survey series including 200 hectares that is called into question and an order of the Bombay Supreme Court to maintain the status quo since 1997.
In 2015, under public pressure, the state government was willing not to destroy the cover of Aarey tree and ordered the suburban commuter of Mumbai, Shekhar Channe, to file a sworn statement before HC Request that the stay be lifted.
In his affidavit submitted in August 2015, Channe said that it was the most ideal and most suitable soil and that there were no other suitable land available.
He added that although the Aarey colony was initially intended to be used, just as it had been excluded since the land falls into the environmentally sensitive area. The affidavit states that if the requested repair was not granted then the project would be threatened.
The collector said that if the petitioners succeeded, then the government would compensate economically according to the law.
Madan said the court ordered the government to deposit the full amount until the issue is completed.
This represented around 2661 crore.MMRDA Rs then decided not to follow the question and moved to Aarey. One of the decisive factors was the deadline established by the government for the completion of the project. The government wants the project to be commissioned before the next general election.
Madan admitted that was one of the reasons to choose Aarey. This is also confirmed in the April letter of Mumbai 2016 Metro Rail Corporation Ltd urban development department focused Aarey land.
“One of the most important activities for the success of the Metro-III project is the construction of the tank to receive, test and commission trains, which may be subject to serious delays due to a pending decision in the Depot car.”
He was asked if the government would now have to pay a deposit in the Kanjurmarg plot, Madan said they now had other documents and plans in favor of the government.
“We have reaffirmed the issue to the government prosecutor and maybe we will not need to deposit money,” he said, adding that MMRDA will pursue the matter.
But the car shed Metro III will arrive in Aarey, said Madan, “because the land Kanjurmarg is not enough to meet the needs of the two corridors.”
D Stalin, Director, Vanashakti, who displaced the National Green Court to declare Aarey as a forest, said the deposit could be built Kanjurmarg. “This is a good site for an integrated transport hub. It is the lack of political will that prevents Aarey from unnecessary ruin,” he said.
